Ramadan in Downtown West

  • DW Calgary 1000 9 Avenue Southwest Calgary, AB, T2P 2Y6 Canada (map)

“It may come as a surprise to non-Muslims that the holy month of Ramadan, when many Muslims spend daylight hours fasting, is one of our city’s biggest celebrations of food.

Where to eat in DW during Ramadan?  Try Atlas Specialty Supermarket & Persian Cuisine at 1000 9 Ave SW.  Specializing in Persian dishes such as rich khoresht stews, kabob wraps and fresh salads, Atlas is a busy spot during Ramadan, offering light soups to help observers gently break their fasts in addition to its regular menu.”  READ MORE AT AVENUE CALGARY>>
